Zombie cross stitch, completed and framed in 4x6 or 5x7 secondhand frame

---The Story---

If you are a zombie, you're probably pretty disappointed in your options for Valentine's Day gifts for your loved one('s brain).

For one thing, you probably can't talk very well anymore, and the only word you're likely to make understood is "brains." Even more frustrating, your loved one probably misses the nuance in HOW you say "brains" that communicates whether you're interested in watching a movie together, going for a nice, shambling walk, or just hungry for her brains.

You could buy the zombie cupid ( http://www.etsy.com/listing/90142844/anti-valentines-day-zombie-cupid ), or you could give her a small "brains, sweet brains" ( http://www.etsy.com/listing/90685927/brains-sweet-brains-zombie-cross-stitch ) but you probably don't want to draw any more attention to the wanting-to-eat-her-brain thing than you have to. After all, it's not all about you being a zombie. V-Day is about your loved one('s brains), too.

FINALLY, there's a solution for you. You can communicate your love through the one word you're still able to say by giving your loved one this translation cross stitch. No longer will only dinosaurs get the love and approval that all monsters deserve! The world needs to know that RAWR isn't the only way to say "I love you."

If you are a King Kong, a Godzilla, a slug, or another hideous monster, don't worry. Translation cross stitches are on the way for you as well. Convo me to let me know you're waiting and I'll put your species' version on a rush.

---The Deets---

*CUSTOMIZE: If you're a businessman, let me know by selecting the "businessman zombie" option, and I'll make sure the stitched you is also in a(n appropriately tattered) suit, as in the third picture above. (Obviously you'd have lost the blazer early on, but the button-up shirt and slacks still keep you decent [for a zombie].)

*FRAME: For U.S. and Canadian customers, each cross stitch will be made to order and framed in a straight-from-the-Goodwill, probably tastefully pre-distressed frame, such as the ones pictured. You're also welcome to request a natural wood hoop frame (oval 3.5x5" or round 4") instead in the purchase notes, or to receive the cross stitch either mounted on self-stick mounting board (ready for you to frame it) or simply on the aida cloth it's stitched on.

If you're outside the U.S. or Canada but you're interested in this stitch, you will NOT receive this stitch framed because the shipping prices would become prohibitive. Instead, it will arrive on a self-stick mounting board ready to frame in a 4x6 or 5x7 frame OR you may request it in a lightweight 3x5 natural wood hoop, backed by loose felt.

*SHIP: This stitch will ship via USPS first class or international first class within a week of your order.

*GIFT WRAP: If you're giving this stitch as a gift and you'd like it ready to give, choose "yes please" for gift wrap when you order. I'll wrap it up in plain paper with a felt belt and add a notecard for your message -- or if it's going straight to the recipient, let me know what message you'd like to send (in addition to "Braaaains") in the notecard and I'll write it in for you!

---The Legal Stuff---

My designs are copyright me (2009-2012) and I'm not selling this one at this time.

Please don't copy it! I have a large zombie fan base, and they know where you live...and please also don't pin without permission. (Convo me!)

Frequently asked questions about aliciawatkins

I love to do custom work during the non-holiday months! I try to work on one custom project at a time so that I can give each project my full customizing attention; as a result, a significant lead time on deadlines for receiving your custom order is very much appreciated.

If possible, try to contact me at least a month in advance of a deadline for receiving a 5x7 custom cross stitch. (That said, if you're in a pinch and you know I'm the stitcher for the job, convo me anyway! If I happen to be in between custom orders, I can often get things out in a much shorter time, and like I said, I love working with customers on personalized stitchery.)
Most of my small finished cross stitches have an option for gift wrapping.

If you don't see a drop-down list as you purchase a small hooped or framed cross stitch (smaller than 4x6), but you would like your item to be wrapped in plain paper (with a small notecard for your message included), request gift wrap as you check out in the "notes to seller"!

If you're having your gift sent directly to the recipient, please double-check the address it's going to before you finish checking out, and let me know what you'd like me to write in the notecard to your recipient! :)
Mini kits are available for wholesale ordering at any time; contact me for details on which kits I have available with shelf-ready labeling, and for pricing details!

I also offer a selection of finished cross stitch available for wholesale or certain consignment situations, for stores that feel my work would be a good fit. Contact me if you're interested in carrying my work in your store, and we'll talk about what I've done in the past and what you're looking for! :)
I believe in using secondhand frames because it's eco-friendly, supports my local thrift shops, and allows me to frame your items, if you'd like that, at very low cost.

Because they are unique and unapproved by you, I don't pass on the cost of the secondhand frames to you, except for the cost of shipping (usually about a $2 difference).

When you order an item from me, rest assured that you are only paying for the stitchwork, and you may treat the frame as a "suggestion" -- if you don't like it, give the frame away! Your 4x6 or larger cross stitch will come with a mounting board that will allow you to easily pop it out of the "suggested" frame I've sent it in and into any same-sized frame of your choice.
I can't send you a photo of your options for 4x6 or larger frames; I have too many frames and a too quickly rotating stock for that. However, you're welcome to let me know your preferences in color and material (i.e. wood, metal, plastic) and I'll do what I can to accommodate your wishes.

If you receive your stitchwork and you HATE the frame I chose from my cache of secondhand frames, never fear! The stitching for a 4x6 or larger frame will be mounted on a board that you can simply pop out of the secondhand frame you received, and pop INto a frame you choose from a local store, another Etsy seller, or anywhere you find perfect frames.

Because the secondhand frames I send are free, I cannot offer replacements or frame-related refunds.
Google and Youtube are your BFFs in learning to cross stitch, but if you've purchased a kit or pattern from my shop, I can also offer you a Basic Cross Stitch instruction booklet via email. Just let me know you'd like one, and I'll send it along! :)
